My family has visited Charlemagne's Kingdom twice and enjoyed it both times. The owner is very friendly and passionate about trains. The store is filled with good quality trains and other toys, many of which your kids can try out. The train model is amazing. You could spend a long time looking at all the details in the villages. Definitely... More

The place is great for Train fans. Also if you are a Germany freak like me, you will love the place because it is a miniature Germany. The price is a little too expensive for what it is, but it's a good experience once in a lifetime.

Lots of time went into this and is obviously a labor of love. There is an amazing amount of detail in the model. Small kids won't appreciate it too much.

Amazing detail and work was put into this effort. Certainly worth the visit. Was so cold outside that we were looking for any place out of the weather. Glad we stopped

If you want to have a fun time this is the place to go. For $5 adult and $2 children you can spend time just having fun. The talent and time that went into this train display is amazing. Go have fun. You'll wish you had one at home.

Such an amazing talent this owner has. He worked years to build his exhibit, model scale of German towns from the mountains to the sea :) Worth the 5 dollars to see it!

This is a nice electric train display, but that is all it is. The kids were interested for a about 15 minutes. The cost is $5 an adult and $2 a child over 4. My kids enjoy trains, but this display was about ~3 feet off of floor, so smaller kids don't have a good floor view. They do have... More

We spent a pleasant morning here. Very friendly and knowledgeable owners. While we did not go inside to the model train payout, we were allowed to peek at it and were able to see the tremendously intricately wrought kingdom. We spent our time talking with in the attached store browsing the selection of merchandise. They carry some interesting items and... More

Many, many, many hours, and dollars went into this unbelievable HO scale model railroad layout! I've seen many layouts, and this ranks very, very near the top. The $5.00 per person price to view the layout is very well worth it. You can view the layout from ground level, as well as from above. With the huge vertical proportions, you... More
